Woefully, I did not take a before picture Sad, but everyone already knows what biz-cas pants look like; I just basically hacked off the legs about 20" down, hacked off the hem about 4" up then sewed them together, so... ON TO THE RECON!

My lover-ly new shorts:

And with buttons!!!

It only took about 2.5 hours last night and when I wore them to my internship in San Francisco today, I totally got a comment unawares at lunch... I overheard a chick tell a friend that my shorts were "so cute"

Happy happy, joy joy.

Those are so adorable. I wish I had the patience for a hem (I have to handsew everything. all my stuff is completely unfinished.)
